Introduction to R for Healthcare Researchers

R is becoming increasing popular to manage and analyse all forms and sizes of data. This course will take you from basic concepts to some of the most powerful and diverse applications of the R programming language.

Participants will learn how to manage data in a variety of formats and use both inbuilt and user-defined tools to perform tasks that are routinely encountered with real data. By the end of the course, participants should be confident to use R for their own research projects.
